Lyman's "Meade's Headquarters" was composed of letters to his wife and published after his death, so the tone, humor, and observations are of a different quality, and extremely amusing. He was also keenly aware of the history he was observing and noted in one letter that he had seen standing together on a single day Grant, Sherman, Meade, and Sheridan.
But Porter gave us a truly fresh impression of Grant as a person, instead of Grant the icon. I read a tremendous number of source materials on the Civil War and my favorite accounts are those of line soldiers and aides-de-camp. They have an immediacy and personality to them that brings us so much closer to the generation that lived through the greatest convulsion in American history.
